Non-South Africans should realize that facilities like this are a far cry from a “proper” game lodge experience. The developers of the facility have done a good job in cobbling together land and stocking it with wildlife, but it really is more of a glorified zoo than a proper game reserve. The facilities are nice and the staff are lovely, so it's certainly worth a visit. But I wouldn't recommend staying more than a day.
